Bernadette Eichler Youth Ambassador Program is accepting applications


The Bernadette Eichler Youth Ambassador Program, sponsored in part by the Bank of Utica, is entering into its 9th year in the 2020-21 season, and is accepting applications.

The one-of-a-kind program represents more than 40 schools in central New York. Broadway Utica’s goal is to invest in the young people and to inspire them to thrive in the world of theatre, the arts, the community and in life.

Students accepted into the program will be given a season subscription to Broadway Utica, attend pre-talks prior to all the performances, develop relationships with others and be more prepared to act as contributing citizens. In exchange, the student is required to complete a pre-show synopsis and a post-show review for each performance, community service and making the commitment to be an active participant of the program.
